There he is, superman. He was my best (and first) friend for the first five years of my life. Cassidy. My cousin, the son of my mother's, then, closest sister, born eight days after me. We did everything together. He gave me my beloved truck as a bday present, and pushed me around on anything that had wheels...I entertained him (as a baby) and bossed him around as we grew older. He called me "rah-rah," and I would scream "My name is SARAH ELIZABETH TORO!" and he would reply, "ok, rah-rah."
I rarely see Cassidy anymore, when he shipped off to boot-camp, we shipped off for a job in Denver...he served two tours of duty, and now we are on opposite ends of the country...our free and safe country...thanks to people like my cousin, who selflessly serve and protect us. Thank you for your sacrifices, Cassidy. Thank you Misty and Kayla for sacrificing your husband and daddy. Thank you to everyone who serves our country, for putting your lives on the line to protect us.
